Montero became the first Sounders player to reach half a century goals in the regular season and pushed his advantage over Ruidíaz to six. The Sounders’ all-time leading goalscorer looked lively all match, and he even had a bicycle kick in the first half that was just pushed wide by Melia.
The Sounders fell to No. 2 in the Supporters’ Shield standings after the New England Revolution’s win over CF Montreal, but they maintain their lead atop the West. Seattle sits on 32 points from 16 matches, but Sporting is now just two points behind with a match in hand.
The Sounders return to Lumen Field next Saturday with a home match against the San Jose Earthquakes (2 p.m. PT; JOEtv, Prime Video, 950 KJR AM, El Rey 1360 AM | TICKETS). Seattle already defeated the ‘Quakes 1-0 in San Jose on May 12.
